I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. Welcome to my little world :-)

China Glaze - Primavera


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (5-6 minutes a coat). It is a lovely pink colour with a subtle shimmer, you can just about make out the shimmer! Lasted okay.

Jade - Deja Vu

Last photo indoor lighting all others in the sunshine.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (6-7 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous raspberry holo and looks amazing in the sunshine! And pretty good indoors too! Lasted really well.

Dance Legend - Termo Shine 166


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a thermal polish that changed from peach to brown and it has a slight shimmer. The transition isn't as good as the others I've had from this range, but it is okay. Lasted really well and for a brown, I kinda like it!

China Glaze - DV8

First and last photo indoor lighting, rest in the sunshine.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and fast drying (less than a minute a coat). It is very prone to dragging and bald spots so make sure there is plenty polish on the brush as it is a mini and carefully apply! This is a gorgeous holo, looks different in both lighting I think. I don't think it is as intense as the previous in the set. This one didn't last too well and had some staining upon removal :-|

Revlon - Tanzanite

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice purple that goes slightly bronze too. It is a nice iridescent polish but not that strong. The purple colour is gorgeous. Lasted well.
